I have a nice -20°F rated Marmot down bag and a 2.5" thick thermarest. Never been cold in that setup down to about -10°F. Thought about the -40 but figured I'd just stay home in those conditions....

I think he means he already has a 3" body lift. His buddy is selling a 2" lift (suspension I assume?). These front ends can go up about 2" without having to use drop brackets but you will need to...

My grandfathers was leaking, I replaced the whole valve. That was an 02' 4.6L. Just checked my 96' 5.8L and the whole valve is removable too. BUT both of those had a hex for a wrench on the valve,...

The sleeve should have some "spring" left in it, though it wouldn't be much I don't think. Beyond that, I'm not sure, dirty threads come to mind but I'd guess you were careful of that.

Pinion nut is tight. I use a 2' breaker bar and a 1" ID pipe (about 30") extension. The other trick is to make a pinion flange holder. I use a piece of 3/8" thick 2" wide flat stock, with two holes...
